Okay, maybe a cricut doesn’t chirp but it is one of the most popular tools used by scrapbookers and crafters. The one machine I would like to go over is the Cricut Expression. Here is an description from their website:

Make your crafts impressively expressive.

Whether you’re designing a scrapbook of your family vacation or making 200 wedding invitations for your best friend, the Cricut Expression® easily ensures your creative possibilities are truly endless.

Larger than the Cricut® Create or the Cricut® Personal Electronic Cutter, the Cricut Expression® precisely cuts letters, shapes, and motifs in impressive sizes using the 12″ x 24″ mat or the 12″ x 12″ mat. You can also create bigger die cuts for classroom decor, scrapbook layouts, signage, and so much more.

Buy your Cricut Expression® today and start exploring the depths of your creativity.

Includes the Plantin SchoolBook™ font cartridge, the Accent Essentials™ shape cartridge (not included with all offers), and 1 12 x 12 cutting mat.

To see what I am talking about check out this video on YouTube: (don’t listen to the pricing on this video)

You can see how amazing this machine is for a crafter. I caved in a week ago and bought one that was only $199.00. How amazing of a price is that? Overall, I have to give the cricut a 4 star review. The reason why I am pulling out a star is the cartridge prices for one of their cutouts. $89.00 is the full price for one box of patterns.

Here is the best thing I can suggest for you, I would suggest checking out your local Jo-Anns and see what they have for the Cricut Expression. The Cricut website is sold out but Amazon has it right now  for $164.38. If you are looking for an inexpensive Cricut to start out, the Expression would be the way to go. If you already have a Cricut or need the cartridges then check out eBay. You can find a lot of brand new Cricut cartridges as little as $25.00! I usually pay about $25.00-$30.00 and they come sealed. I am really excited about my new toy and trust me, you are going to love this machine as much as I do.
